This list was a few months in the making. At first, I was gonna make a Top 250 list. But then I already crossed the 200 mark and I was still in the 1950's. I keep extending and extending the list until I said, "Okay, 500!" Even at 500, I had to make some tough cuts. I keep editing it these past few months. I wanted my list to cover my personal favorites in as many diverse genres, sub-genres, directors and countries as possible. I highly recommend each and every film on this list. (NOTE: This list is arranged CHRONOLOGICALLY because *you* try ranking 500 movies. It's a pain in the ass!)
EDITED: I've updated this list for 2020.
